Take 5 Bar Cookie Recipes (yum!)

I love giving my clients a Hershey's Take 5 candy bar when they come in for a session.  Just one more added bonus that keeps the post-massage bliss going.  I recently discovered online a couple of recipes for Take 5 Bar Cookies!   So, if you've got extra Halloween candy or a stash of snack-sizeTake 5 bars lying around, give these tasty treats a whirl...

Take 5 Cookie 

2 sticks butter (room temperature)3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
3 cups All Purpose flour
1 1/2 semi-sweet cups chocolate chips 
1 bag Hershey’s Take 5 bars (Snack Size) 

Cream butter, peanut butter and sugars.
Add eggs one at a time.
Add vanilla.
Mix dry ingredients separately.
Slowly add dry ingredients to mix.
Add chocolate chips.
Chill dough for about 2 hrs.
After dough is chilled preheat oven to 375┬║.
Unwrap Take 5 bars and cut in half.
Now take a large spoon-full of dough and cover each candy…Don’t worry; these cookies are large. You could always quarter the Take 5 bars if you wanted a larger batch of smaller cookies.
Bake for about 7 - 8 minutes until cookie starts to brown around edges.

Wait for them to cool and garnish with a drizzle of chocolate or caramel…Or, hey— both if you’re feeling crazy!
